Pain Relief


portable pain relief

Several days ago, Will cracked one of his upper teeth eating an almond.  I know… go figure.  Maybe that tooth had a hairline fracture before?  Anyway, he made it into the dentist yesterday to determine what could be done.  It wasn’t good.  The crack was deep enough that it was right down to the bone.  The dentist said it couldn’t be repaired with a crown and needed to just be yanked outta there.  Yikes!

After a couple hours in the dentist chair for the extraction, they sent him with a prescription for hydrocodone.  He did take one last night and it made him totally loopy.  This morning, he needed to get back to work remodeling a basement.  Hydrocodone combined with power tools didn’t sound like a wise idea, so I made him a few “pain relief capsules.”  He took one right away and took the other two to work.

I put 4-6 drops Frankincense and 4-6 drops Marjoram in an empty capsule.  Then I grabbed an empty peppermint beadlet bottle, removed the plastic orifice and dropped in the two capsules.  They’re safe in their glass case in his lunchbox or pocket until he needs one in 4-6 hours.  When he called later in the morning, I asked how his pain was and he said he was fine!  We’ll see how the day goes, but we’re optimistic that he won’t need the pharmaceuticals.

Keep in mind that not all essential oils are of equal quality.  We only use doTERRA essential oils because of their quality and purity.

This is personal testimony and not a recommendation for you, ’cause I’m not a doctor and can’t do that.

On Guard, On the Go!

I love the new On Guard soft gels!  Whenever I start getting that little niggling feeling in my throat that tells me I’m coming down with something, I take one of these and nearly always feel better in just a few hours.  But since I’m not always home, I wanted to take a few ofRead More

Garden Tour June 2014

The potatoes are doing well.  The girls helped me get those deep into the ground the first week in May, before the snow storm over Mother’s Day weekend that brought us 18″ of heavy wet snow.  So the baby spuds were tucked safely in, 6″ down under.  The beetles have nearly been banished and theRead More

Beetle Bounty

As I arrived home the other day, Will was coming up the driveway from the garden holding his hand out. When he neared, he showed me the beetle crawling on his palm and reported that there were many more on the potato plants. Did I know what they were? Oh crap, I said, (not really,Read More
